The Wild follows the story of a group of animals living in the Central Park Zoo where they lead an easy and comfortable life. The lead character of the story, Samson (voiced by Kiefer Sutherland), is a brave and proud lion king of the park. His son, Ryan (voiced by Greg Cipes), is a teenage lion cub who is eager and curious about everything around him.

The movie takes a turn when Ryan, who is getting bored with his life at the zoo, wanders off to a shipping container with his friends Benny (voiced by Jim Belushi), a squirrel, and Nigel (voiced by Eddie Izzard), a koala. Samson rushes to save his son and his friends, but they are unexpectedly shipped away on a boat to an unknown location.

As the boat reaches its destination, the animals are revealed to be in the wilds of Africa, far away from their familiar surroundings. Ryan and his friends are thrilled at the prospect of being in the wild, but Samson knows the dangers and the struggles that lie ahead in the perilous and unfamiliar terrain.

As the group encounters a pack of wildebeests led by the ruthless Kazar (voiced by William Shatner), they soon realize that their adventure is far from over.

The Wild is a beautifully animated movie filled with amusing animal characters, fun adventures, and a great cast. The voice cast delivers their lines with flair and gusto, bringing to life each of their characters with vivid personalities and emotions.

Kiefer Sutherland is perfect in his portrayal of the courageous lion king, Samson, and successfully communicates the king's struggle to protect his son and his friends from harm. Greg Cipes also deserves praise for his voice work as the lively and curious Ryan, whose naivete and boldness take him on an adventure of a lifetime.

Jim Belushi and Eddie Izzard add to the fun with their equally memorable performances as Benny and Nigel, respectively. While these characters provide comic relief, they also play a crucial role in helping the group navigate through the dangerous and challenging terrain of Africa.

The animation is top-notch, with vibrant colors and breathtaking landscapes. The movie is a treat for the eyes, capturing the beauty and splendor of Africa's wildlife with stunning detail.

The story of The Wild is not just about adventure and comedy. It showcases the importance of family, the lengths a parent will go to protect their child, and the unexpected discoveries that come with stepping out of one's comfort zone.

The movie also has a great soundtrack, featuring catchy songs that complement the action on the screen, providing a fun and entertaining experience for the audience.

Overall, The Wild is an enjoyable and exciting movie that will keep both kids and adults entertained. It's a perfect family-friendly adventure that combines humor, heart, and life lessons. The movie is a must-watch for anyone who loves animals, adventures or just wants to experience a fun and thrilling ride.
